What we need tackle cyberbullying:

We need:

-- parents who are well informed and can make effective decisions about technology use (e.g., decisions about access, monitoring, filtering, conditions of use, and consequences of misuse);

-- kids who can make responsible decisions and empathize with others, especially when nobody else is watching;

-- school adminisitrators and legislators that can establish appropriate policies/laws for those that do harm using technology;

-- kids who can effectively cope with bullying and other negative life experiences;

-- kids and others that stand up for each other;

-- technological solutions such as those that effectively block, filter, monitor, and respond to potential harm.
